The SF Chart

A simple method to get out of the plan

Marco Matera & Carey Glass

Introduction by Carey Glass

Marco has a skill in bringing visual description alive. This article provides us with an enchanting description of SF and a very clear and accessible visual chart for using it with individuals and teams. In his description he provides the lovely image that problems have frameworks but imaginings have space. He describes that if we are moving away from the problem rather than going toward the solution we are still anchored to the problem.

His template for working with SF provides a simple and practical diagram that is easily remembered and easily used. It brings SF alive in a very practical way that any individual or team could remember and use again and again. He has mastered the art of conveying SF simply.
